... "uniformly". What does this mean? We don't mean that its acceleration as measured by an inertial observer is constant. We mean that it is moving such that its acceleration measured in a "momentarily comoving inertial frame" is ...

... depend on its acceleration. But note: the clock postulate does not say that the rate of timing of a moving clock is unaffected by its acceleration. The timing rate will certainly be affected if the acceleration changes the clock's ...

... x ) with respect to time is velocity (symbol v ) and the second is acceleration (symbol a ). It is a little less well known that the third derivative, i.e. the rate of change of accelera-tion, is technically known as jerk (symbol j ). ...

... a clock when measured in an inertial frame depends only upon its velocity relative to that frame, and is independent of its acceleration or higher derivatives. The experiment of Bailey et al. referenced above stored muons in a magnetic ...

... relativity? How do you add velocities in special relativity? Can special relativity handle acceleration? Does a clock's acceleration affect its timing rate? Do moving clocks always run slowly? What are the equations for a relativistic ...

... In the northern hemisphere, Coriolis acceleration makes low pressure storm systems spin counterclockwise; however, in the southern hemisphere, they spin clockwise because the direction of the Coriolis acceleration is reversed. This ...
